FIGHTTHEPOWER29

Pro

Alright I've seen a lot of these and I think its a good fit for me to get started on DDO ^.^

1st round will just be for acceptance

2nd round both sides will just present a word its definition and how its amusing.

If Con explains why his word is better than Pro then Con loses because Pro cannot refute said arguments.

Good Luck to whoever accepts :D

Good Luck to FIGHTTHEPOWER29 ^.^ looking forward to an interesting word coming out :p
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

My word is:

Skepticism- The questioning of Morality's existence

Skepticism should win this round because its a major branch of philosophy about Morality not existing anywhere. Questioning Morality's existence and arguing it is not existence de-constructs the ideas of religion ever being real or true, therefore Skepticism is important towards breaking down society and reforming it in a more rational way of thinking.

Hmm it seems you like Philosophy a lot..

Before I present my word I would like to point out Pro had no source so sources can already go to Con

pwned-
A corruption of the word "Owned." This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled "owned." When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so "has been owned."
Instead, it said, so-and-so "has been pwned." It basically means "to own" or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force. [1]

I think pwned should win because it is really amusing and its what we all tend to do to each other on this site :p

Vote Con !

Reasons for voting decision: Pro really didn't say why the word was amusing, he argued that the subject of skepticism is important. "pwned" is amusing because of it's derivation.

Reasons for voting decision: I like non-troll debaters who accept these debates so they can get them hurried along. So I always give the contender conduct if he/she is not a troll. And personally, I have never heard of con's word so he wins this debate.
